World Understanding Begins with Children. Bulletin, 1949, No. 17
Goetz, Delia
Office of Education, Federal Security Agency
A major challenge to those concerned with the guidance and training of children today is to prepare them to take their places in a world in which they will be brought into increasingly closer relationship with the peoples of other lands. More and more we are stressing the need for developing better understanding of the people to whom we are so closely drawn in time. And more and more we are coming to realize that the foundation for this understanding must be laid in childhood. It is essential that we give children experiences which will help them to become good citizens of the world. Properly developed, a study of people of other lands and other cultures should enrich children's lives and make them more appreciative of their own community as well as of the rest of the world. It should help them think clearly and judge fairly. This bulletin suggests many sources of material suitable for elementary schools and ways to use the materials, enabling teachers to interest students in other peoples and cultures.
